People who think about crossing the street because they think that they can move faster than not 1 but 4 emergency vehicles? Saw someone contemplate it today from another street and all I could think was, "Are you nuts?"

For some people, laziness reigns supreme.
Some people just know, deep down, that the road is theirs, it belongs to them, everybody else is merely granted access at their discretion and graciousness.

I don't recall that one exactly, off the top of my head.

So true and then there are people in their cars who seem to think that they can keep driving along when an emergency vehicle is coming in any direction. I DON'T drive and I know that they are suppose to pull over and let the cop, ambulance, fire truck, paramedics go by and wait a minute to see if anything else is going to come after.

I believe in solving problems, not sharing them.


Have you ever seen someone hit by a paramedic truck? There's just something so ironic about the thought. But hey! At least medical service would be right at-hand!

Just today, as I was rolling up to a red light I saw/ heard an emergency vehicles heading in my direction from the other side. Of course, the red light was facing the ambulance driver as well, it was cross-traffic that had the green light. Still, when you hear a siren, even if you have a green light and can't see the vehicle, you really SHOULD slow down. After all, ER vehicles DO go thru red lights (cautiously)!

But I saw someone blow right thru that intersection, about 15' in front of the approaching ambulance and I though.... WTF?!?! Was the driver so deaf, or was the music so loud, or was their eyesight so impaired, that the lights and sirens were invisible/inaudible???
